Your Health Care Provider

Take the time to find a health care provider who understands and supports your decision to breastfeed. A supportive health care provider will explain the importance of breastfeeding for you and your baby. The right health care provider will make you feel comfortable about asking questions and will encourage you to breastfeed.

Visit potential health care providers' websites to look for information on breastfeeding. You can also call their office and ask about breastfeeding materials and support. Consider what is important to you or what you've been curious about and don't hesitate to ask. The right doctor for you will want to hear your questions!
